The Pact: Syndicate Masters Book 2

I love where Ms. James seems to be taking this series. The origin of the shifters is definitely different. It’s not the first Shifter Mafia book I’ve read, but she adds a good twist on it!

Reluctant Retiree

Book Blurb:

Gavan Drummond is the most powerful man in Scotland, he is neither pure nor innocent. Can I trust him to save my company?

My family has been making single malt whiskey for centuries and has a world-renowned reputation. A rival has been trying to put us out of business and acquire both our distilling methods and our land. In an effort to save me from a forced marriage, my grandfather leaves Drummond 51 percent of the business to hold in trust until I marry.

Now my grandfather is dead and I have to deal with the distillery, the rival family wanting me dead, and Drummond – the black tiger. But I don’t know where else to turn to for help.

Gavan offers me a Pact … submit for a year or lose my legacy. If I accept, will I be sharing the bed of a man or a beast?

The Pact is a dark mafia romance in the Syndicate Masters series. If you like intrigue, men determined to possess their women, and the strong intelligent women who stand up to them, then you’ll love Delta James’ newest Kindle melting paranormal romance.

“The Pact” is the second book in the ‘Syndicate Masters’ series by Delta James. Strong characters, drama, intrigue, passion and the paranormal excitement of shifters combine in this fast-paced story. You can read and enjoy this book as a standalone.

Lord Gavan Drummond is the head of the Gallogass Syndicate in Scotland. Although it’s a mafia and a criminal organization, he has his own strict moral code of right and wrong. He and his clan also have a huge ancestral secret . And, along with his vast array of properties, legitimate businesses, and not so legitimate businesses, he owns the majority interest in Club Termonn, a BDSM lifestyle club. Blaise Munro was orphaned when an accident killed her parents. She was raised by her maternal grandfather. He raised her with love and with his knowledge of the family business, the Kilted Fire distillery is on Isle of Skye in Scotland, which is also where Castle Cat-Sith is located – the ancestral home of Gavan Drummond.

A dramatic event in her life connects Gavan and Blaise in unexpected and complicated ways that increase the attraction between them from a low-key simmer to a blazing inferno. Additional drama reveals itself as unknown persons are after Blaise and her distillery. She and Gavan enter into an intense D/s relationship with wildly rough (but consensual) physical intimacy. I thought a few of the secondary characters were very good, particularly Vera, Hamish and Dougal. There is a nice balance of the predictable and the unexpected. There are also little entertaining nuggets of familiarity when mention is made of places or characters from other books in other series by the author. I’m looking forward to meeting the next Master in the Syndicate.

Oh, My Roared: Paranormal Dating Agency #12

Francesca Virgata wants a mate. She longs for the perfect kind of love her parents had. There’s only one problem, she has zero prospects. Thankfully, she’s heard of Gerri Wilder who promises to make all her mating dreams come true.

Theo and Marcus are best friends and share everything, even women. So when they both fall for Francesca, it’s only natural they have a friendly competition over who can get the girl. After some thought, and a hot little interlude, they realize she shouldn’t choose one over the other, they should work together to make the perfect triad. A lion, a tiger and a bear, oh my!

There has been talk of abuse in Francesca’s pride and she won’t tolerate it. She’ll fight tooth and claw to ensure all members are safe. But when her brother turns on her, who will protect her? Theo and Marcus will do anything for her, but it might be easier to let them both go than to choose only one of the men she’s come to love.

So many emotions, i thought i was having a panic attack from the party that was going on, i had to put the book down for a few minutes before i could resume. I almost skipped that part the second try but I'm glad i didn't. It was a great book, i was on the emotional roller coaster that this book was. Glad miss taiden didn't add the details from previous incidents, and I'm glad everything worked out and they got their HEA.

They both emails Gerri to find them a mate and Gerri arrange a party at Steakhouse restaurant that where they both meet Francesca. She feels at first that she need to pick one of them but eventually she begins fallfor them. Francesca starts to hear and see strange behavior of her brother and his friends. She also saw the new guy raping a young girl that unconscious and allowing others to participate in outside the pride house during a party.
I really enjoy that she's trying to get her black belt in karate which she used against the guys that are sexually assaulted a young girl. Francesca tries to figure out what is going on in her pride and confront her brother about it. She also have to decide if she can take chance on Marcus and Theo and maybe have children. You will have to buy this book to find out and you will enjoy it. I enjoyed learning about Marcus and Theo's background and how different they are. I wonder if Gerri might be next to find a mate or not.

Every year this author works her Christmas magic and brings us a fantastic holiday story we don’t want to miss. So much action, suspense and steamy moments that lead to love with the help of a certain silver wolf. I love this newest addition to the series and how we don’t really know people the way we think we do. The characters went through a lot in a few short pages, but they left their mark on me all the same. I hope the author brings us many more PDA books in the new year, and maybe a little history lesson from the famous mate maker. No matter what she sends my way next I’m sure it’s going to be amazing.

This story starts out a little differently than the others as Gerri has already set up Lake and Priscilla on their first blind date. We start out as the date is beginning but everything seems to go wrong and it appears that Gerri has lost her touch. Little does Priscilla know that the person she is on a date with is not Lake at all but someone trying to keep them apart.

As I am a twin myself I, I can easily see someone not being able to tell twins apart. I really felt for Priscilla and loved this twist to the story.

It is an amazing read and I highly recommend buying to see the twists and turns this takes for Priscilla and Lake when they finally meet.
